You don't think the comic book could maybe both be coloring on a river and crying from out a trombone? But attempting to parse the lyrics of China Cat is sheer madness. I have a long and sincere history of advocacy for What's Become of the Baby: http://archive.org/search.php?query=forumPost%3A1%20AND%20davenport%20become%20baby Good word coming up with the answer, however doubtingly!...

[forums]Re: Classic Albums: The Grateful Dead: Anthem to Beauty
Posted by Lou Davenport on Mar 22, 2012 7:35pm into GratefulDead
Yes, well American Beauty is an exceptionally well-recorded album for its day, and that really comes out in the new LP release on a good analog rig. I view the distortion in the multi-layered parts of The Other One on Anthem as part of the sound--not objectively good sound quality by any means, but a uniquely weird artistic vision. Similarly, no one would teach the un-remastered version of What's Become of the Baby as a model of music mastering, but for me it's one of the great tracks in the his......

[forums]The Dead's 1966 Songs
Posted by light into ashes on Jan 4, 2010 7:09am into GratefulDead
Beyond 1967, there lies a strange land of garage-band Dead. The music sounds odd and unfamiliar - it's not quite "primal Dead", but almost a completely different band than the one we first heard. The band is young and full of pep - dipping their toes in teeny-pop, jugband antiquities, and smoky blues - the few original songs sound like weird attempts to copy the local top 40 - Garcia solos frantically, but the band is still clunky and learning how to carry a jam - Pigpen often takes the lead wit......

For introspective, I don't think you can beat: Waves of violet go crashing and laughing Rainbow winged singing birds fly round the sun Sunbells rain down in a liquid profusion Mermaids on porpoises draw up the dawn What's become of the baby This cold December morning?

Posted by Lou Davenport on Oct 3, 2007 3:05pm into GratefulDead
Okay, my brain is still leaking from the after-effects of Liam's fun mind exercise, and I've lost all impulse control, so here's another way of thinking the unthinkable: How would you rank your favorite band members, songs, and years--all in one numerical list? Yes, this involves comparing apples and oranges. For example, which do you like better: Dancing in the Streets as a contribution to the band's setlists throughout the years, or all of the performances in 1974, or all of Pigpen's contribu......

The Eleven...No wait, New Potato Caboose. NPC is my final vote, with The Eleven getting a close second. And I'd like to thank the judges for my honorable mention while also taking issue with the veiled implication that there's anything counterintuitive about loving What's Become of the Baby. If you've only heard it on the remastered Aoxomoxoa, you need to hear the original, which can be downloaded here: http://www.avantgardeproject.org/gd1969-01-01.zip...

Posted by Lou Davenport on Jul 25, 2007 4:38am into GratefulDead
Johanna was indeed less than ten. Mine is clearly What's Become of the Baby, if songs that were never performed in concert are permitted. Otherwise Blues for Allah narrowly pips Till the Morning Comes and Rosemary in my book. BTW, I toyed with Golden Road, Cream Puff War, and Mindbender (Confusion's Prince)--all of which have ten or fewer performances in the databases--but it seems certain that they were all played a fair number of times in shows whose setlists have been lost....

Posted by Lou Davenport on Jun 12, 2007 11:09am into GratefulDead
Yes, it's obviously different from the CD. Some instruments are higher in the mix than on the CD, and there's all sorts of sounds that were mixed out in the remix--making the remix much less entertaining, IMO. Some tracks have intros and closes (a capella ending to Doin That Rag, for example) that became fade-ins and fade-outs on the remix. And What's Become of the Baby is actually worth listening to on the original mix, with understandable lyrics......

Posted by Lou Davenport on Apr 4, 2007 11:34pm into GratefulDead
I stand by what I said before--I think What's Become of the Baby is a great, great number in the original mix. It draws an incredible array of timbres into a coherent (yes!) web of sound, and it has tremendous emotional power. But it's not for the faint of heart....

[forums]Re: Seemingly Unpopular Songs/Albums/Shows, etc. That You Enjoy Regardless
Posted by Lou Davenport on Apr 3, 2007 3:26pm into GratefulDead
I really, sincerely love What's Become of the Baby, but only on the original mix of Aoxomoxoa--an LP transcription of which has been torrented at a number of sites over the past year. I think it's a brilliant, emotionally intense piece of musique concrete, and Jerry (or Phil, or whomever you think did the Aoxomoxoa remix) was out of his head when he destroyed it in the remix. I also wish they had played Death Don't Have No Mercy and It's All Over Now Baby Blue way more than they did. Does Laz......

[forums]GD trivia quiz -- debatable and partial answers
Posted by Lou Davenport on Mar 5, 2007 10:37am into GratefulDead
The following eight questions were answered either incorrectly or I'm still not sure of the answer: 1. What song had to wait the longest time between first being performed live and appearing on an officially released LP or CD? Stratocaster has proposed West LA Fadeaway or Touch of Grey. They were both introduced in late 1982 and appeared on In The Dark a little under five years later. I know one that waited over twice that long. 3......
